Bringing it All Home

Testimonial from Parents of Jordan

A few days ago we received a card from one of our Cadets. Inside was one of the most touching and warming testimonials I, and indeed all of us, have ever read.

No words can ever express how much we want to thank you all for what the club has done for our Jordan. He is a completely different and confident child to what he was when we brought him that very first evening and remember what Ken said to us what Aikido would do for him especially after the awful time he had at Redhill School, the terrible bullying he experienced and the physical pain he went through.

It was a very difficult decision to make for his own safety we took him out of school for 5 months while we battled so hard with the authorities to get him into another school.

Thankfully that is all behind Jordan now, he has completely fallen in love with Aikido, he never stops talking about it and showing us the moves at home, he puts his heart and soul into every training session and his one aim is to be a Black Belt. That is so very important to him.

He has made many friends at the club since he started, which we know has helped him immediately and to see such a change is all down to the hard work you and your team have put in with him, we will always be so very grateful.

Thank you all from Jordan’s Mum, Nan and Grandad.”

This is what it’s all about.
